. >> there's something fascinating to all of this. ben bernanke gave this situation the name fiscal cliff which sounds very dramatic and very scary. but what it is is an act of congress that they actually voted for. 174 republicans voted for this law that would then take effect on january 1st with all these spending cuts in it, and democrats -- 95 democrats in the house voted for it, 74 votes for it in the united states senate, and now congress is afraid of actually going through something that it voted for to occur on january 1st because it all feels too dramatic to them. and so there's something very peculiar. the crisis that congress is facing is can they undo something that they voted for, and can they undo it by new year's eve? >> it's irony and paradox upon irony. remember the reason the fiscal cliff is supposed to be so dangerous and the reason why so many people in washington are worried about the fiscal cliff is it's too much deficit reduction too fast. so all of this takes place against a debate about how to reduce the budget deficit. that's why you get into this theater of the
? >> why mess up a good thing. stop printing money, ben bernanke. adam: that is all the time we have got for you today. "the willis report" is next, have a great thursday. gerri: tonight get ready, folks. we arwe're going over the fiscal cliff and lawmakers are just picturing about it, they are not trying to fix it. we have some great ideas to fix the fiscal cliff blues. try flying first class and don't pay for it. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i am gerri willis. tonight congress is pushing america up a fiscal cliff of its own making. president obama and the senate back in washington today trying to get some kind of a deal done, that is what they say, but nothing will likely come in time. harry reid spent the day moaning about how bad of a speaker john boehner is good the house is set to return sunday afternoon just one day before the end of the year. nearly 90% of americans will be hit with $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts. as we head off a cliff, what can you and your family expect come january 2? president of the american action reform joins me now. so,
needs to be decided t. massachusetts will have a special especs to replace john kerry. actor ben affleck is no longer in the mix. he took his name out of the running there. >>> a busy day, given it's a thursday as we watched the senate get back to work and hopefully cobble something together. brian schatz will be sworn in today. he tweeted just had a nice conversation brief chat with the president this morning. was schatz the best choice? >> it seems like it. he's very family to hawaiians, and most importantly he's a democrat. clearly in the context of senator unoway's passing, it seems only appropriate. he's going to support the president's 'enda, one would think as a united states senator, you would be reporting the agenda of your constituents, which may be in line with the president -- i'm not trying to say it's not, but my point is it seems appropriate. >>> all threw of us you are aware of what inouye had asked. he asked the governor of hawaii name colleen hanabusa to be his successor. there was plenty of response, some outrage from politicos in hawaii about this. in fact she would h
of individual americans. and we all remember the wonderful comment by ben franklin -- i will paraphrase it -- but essentially ben franklin said that if you give up your liberty to have security, you really don't deserve either. and so we owe it to the hardworking men and women in the intelligence community to work closely with them to find that kind of balance that ben franklin was talking about, and we can help them do it by conducting robust oversight, roy bust oversight -- robust oversight over the work that's being done there so that members of the public can have confidence in the important work being done by the men and women in the intelligence community and confidence that, as we protect our security at a dangerous time, we are also protecting the individual liberties of our people. now, mr. president, the story with respect to this debate really begins in early america when the colonists were famously subjected to a lot of taxes by the british government. the american colonists thought thathat this was unfair because they were not represented in the british parliament, and they
recently had with nebraska democratic senator ben nelson. he served two terms and was part of the so-called gang of 14. that is at 8:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. here is a brief look. >> what is your thought about the art of compromise and how much it is now viewed in this city? >> well, you know, is valued to talk about it. everybody back home want people to come back to washington and work together. and then they send people back here who have committed not to work together. that makes it very difficult. if you have in the senate in block of individuals who will not compromise and think of compromise as a for that -- as a four-letter word, which is not, then it becomes difficult to merge ideas and find compromises and accommodations in process or implementation as opposed to your principles. no one is asked to compromise his or her principles when you are talking about compromise. maybe how you go about doing something, not exactly eliminating your view about one thing or another. i think the word compromise is over used, underutilized and misunderstood by an awful lot of people
? not yet scheduled or is it something else? what's the story here? is she really sick or about avoiding ben gaz write? >> i'm not going to question her health. she has been sick for two weeks. missed the hearing on benghazi. view lot of republicans at capitol hill pressuring her. once she is well to come and testify about what happened in libya. >> is she one to back down from a situation like that? i don't think so. >> i doubt it. she sunday so much pressure that republicans now are even talking about postponing john kerry's nomination process for secretary of state until clinton testifies. this is going to be a real issue next month when congress is back. >> you could understand why she would be hesitant considering what happened with the previous person who was trying to be secretary of state. right? i mean, this is -- this is a minefield she walking into. >> what makes had situation so much -- there's been an independent report about what happened in benghazi. according to the report about the state department's actions will were systemic failure to republicans and democrats of capitol

. >> and lastly, i'll just ask you, what is the level of disappointment that ben affleck is not going to run in the state of massachusetts or the commonwealth of massachusetts? >> i knew that one was coming. well, hey, you know, we were all surprised. we either heard jones that he was going to run and suddenly people were taking it seriously and he posted on his facebook page a rather serious posting that said, you know, i'm not going to do it but i'm ownered and thank you. i think there's a little bit of disappointment. certainly he would have had that star quality. but we'll move on to the next guy. >> yeah. i think that would have probably been the two best looking guys in the history to run against each other. thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks. >> the dysfunction of this honor may very well carry over in the 113th session with few signs that either democratic or republican leaders can strike a basic bargaining agreement, let alone a grand bargain. former congressman martin frost 06 texas and david winston, former gingrich campaign adviser, he was auto member of the speaker's of

are a fierce believer in independence of thought, and dissent, and not even george washington or ben franklin might've had a complete monopoly on all of this so it was usual that you had at george mason critiquing it. >> i think george mason seems like a pretty stubborn guy. the other thing was that you know, i think that he made it clear, he did not undermine the process. if you go back and look at the last days, george mason did not throw a monkey wrench into the works. what he did was he made it clear. he made it absolutely clear, he had his list of objections. he thought you needed a bill of rights. he was not a politician. he had -- he was not into making a lot of friends and allies. he was going to argue his point and then he was going to return. i happen to think that was pretty effective. he wasn't against it. remember he was very helpful in developing the constitution, with a strong national government. but, he wanted to build this wall that would make it clear that did not exist in sort of contradiction or in opposition to these individual rights. again, he wasn't cynical. he wasn't
